    From Woj (who else?)-

    G-State restricted free agent Anthony Morrow has slew of interest, including Spurs, Celtics, Lakers, Blazers, Clips and Jazz, sources say.
    This makes MUCH more sense than the Wes Matthews target. Morrow is a guy I have targeted for hte Blazers since the beginning of the season. He's pure instant offense who could thrive playing strictly behind Roy (15 minutes). That is a lot of competition from him so it may take the full MLE to scare away the other teams as well as dissuade Golden State from matching it.

    This guy is somewhat like Martel, very streaky. Seemed like every time he played us though, he went off for like 10 threes a game. I wouldn't mind another player who can shoot the lights out. He will be able to easily spread the floor for our guys.
    I am a fan of having a completely healthy team for once.

    Although he is streaky, I think he is a better "pure" shooter than Webster.

    Webster's Stats From 09-10:
     
    Season Team G GS MPG FG% 3p% FT% OFF DEF RPG APG SPG BPG TO PF PPG
    09-10 POR 82 49 24.5 0.405 0.373 0.813 0.6 2.7 3.3 0.8 0.6 0.5 0.7 1.9 9.4

    Morrow's Stats From 09-10:

     
    Season Team G GS MPG FG% 3p% FT% OFF DEF RPG APG SPG BPG TO PF PPG
    09-10 GSW 69 37 29.2 0.468 0.456 0.886 0.9 2.9 3.8 1.5 0.9 0.2 1.2 2.3 13.0
    Morrow played about 5 more minutes than Webster shot nearly 7% better from the field, 9% better from 3,and 7% better from the foul line. Webs played better defense but Morrow wouldn't need to be a great defender. His job would be like Rudy's was..go out there and SHOOT! Those stats look really solid and the Warriors are in the process of selling their team to new ownership, so I wouldn't worry about GS matching our offer, rather other teams offering more.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
